Choose Your Path 2020 is a replacement for the monthly group coaching sessions we’ve done for the last five years. In 2020, we’ve created “lanes” that allow you to join a group of other professionals that are in the same place as you. Grow, encourage and work together to get to the next lane.
Meetings are once a month for 8 months with the final being an in-person meeting at the National Gift Basket Convention. Individual groups will be created for each lane allowing you to talk, share and ask questions in between coaching sessions.
This service is FREE to GBA members who are gold or platinum and does not replace the regular coaching sessions with Debbie Quintana.
Things You Should Know Sessions are during the week in the morning for 60 minutes via Zoom. Participants are expected to be honest, vulnerable and respectful of others. To protect the privacy of all attendees, meetings are NOT recorded so please only sign up if you can take one hour of every month to dedicate to this process. Sessions start in January and with the final meeting in August at the National Gift Basket Convention.
Things You Should Do Sign up for the “lane” that most resonates with you. Please note you must be a GBA member gold or higher to participate in this process. If you need to upgrade your membership or change levels, please contact Peggy Flynn at email@example.com she’ll assist you.
Dates/Times Lane 1: First Thursday of every month at 9am Arizona Time. Lane 2: Second Thursday of every month at 9am Arizona Time. Lane 3: Fourth Tuesday of every month at 9am Arizona Time.
Lane #1: Development & Start Up: You’re in the stages of setting your company up or are re-birthing your company. You haven’t started marketing yet because you’re not really set up. You’re looking for advice on how to set up properly and launch for success. You’re willing to determine where you are personally and financially to handle a business. You’re typically under a year in business and are still in the development stages of perfecting your marketing plans, product development and streamlining your processes/systems. You are selling but you are looking to really excel in sales and program development. You’re working on your individual skills to improve and excel.
Lane #2: Growth & Establishment: You’re selling consistency and growing your business carefully in a controlled manner. You’re perfecting previous processes and systems, looking for ways to automate as much as you can, delegate to employees and eliminate unnecessary process steps. Time is hard to come by at this stage. Your marketing should be consistent and projects should be completed in a timely manner.
Lane #3: Expansion & Refinement: Your business is becoming somewhat routine. Staff is in place and handling the day to day operations allowing you to be more strategic with your time and thoughts. If you do this right, you'll continue to see growth. Complacency is not an option here. Your game needs to be on with all operational processes on point. Risk assessment and mitigation is important at this stage as well as the need to challenge yourself.
